by Fraser Cain & Dr. Pamela Gay

Sign up through to make a difference in the climate crisis, and Wren will plant 10 extra trees in your name!

Well, this is it. We’re FINALLY going to talk about the James Webb Space Telescope. After decades of development, delays, budget creep, the powerful infrared observatory is at its final home at the L2 Lagrange point. Yesterday (at the time we’re recording this) we saw the first scientific images from the telescope and according to Pamela’s rules, we’re finally allowed to talk about it.
